GRE error pptp vpn outbound

when I do a pptp VPN from my network over an ATT router I get this error only on my windows 10 devices (1 desktop and 2 laptops) via WiFi and via Hardline. my 1 win7 desktop has no issues and when I put the win10 devices on a different network (my hotspot) the VPN goes through with no issues. any ideas?

I've already tried disabling the win10 stations local firewall and that did not help.

Does your ATT router have NAT Traversal enabled?

not sure where to find and edit that. I have a Pace Pla 5268AC modem

I am not familiar with that router and it's features, but if you are using NAT, then there would need to be a NAT Traversal or VPN passthrough setting.

PPTP is not exactly a secure way to build tunnels.. It's easy but does encryption the wrong way, with a broken Cipher (RC4).
And it was broken theoretical around 20 years ago, and practically about 10 years ago...
And not only that, it will be happy to enumerate usernames & passwords for the host as MSCHAPv2 has been sufficiently broken for about the same time.

So please find a better way.  (GRE is not about encryption either, just transforming addresses).

Try L2TP as a replacement. Or plain IPSEC for site-2-site tunnels.
